As the heart of the home, the kitchen is often seen as one of the most important areas for any house builder to get right. There are always new trends to follow and different design elements that can take a good-looking kitchen to a great looking won that can wow any potential buyers. One of the timeless looks that succeeds in this is a wood finish.
This is something that UK-based kitchen specialists, Burbidge is highlighting with its latest range. Whether designers are looking for an entirely wooden aesthetic or an eye-catching focal point in an otherwise painted kitchen, the company describes its expertly crafted designs as ideal for both city chic or rustic rural decors.
“When it comes to wooden kitchens, quality is key,” explained the manufacturer’s Marketing Manager, Joanne Emery. “If budgets don’t allow for solid timber, recent advancements mean laminates are a viable option as they create a realistic, highly durable wood effect finish without the cost.”
However, there are concerns that need to be addressed. “Wood can add an eye-catching texture but, before you make your final choice, it’s important to consider the look you’re trying to achieve,” advised Emery. “Darker woods tend to suit contemporary styles whereas lighter woods, such as oak, offer a traditional charm. Make sure to choose furniture and accessories in complementing shades and materials to ensure you create a timeless, on trend look that you will love for years to come.”
